      Port help.

      Hi everyone,

      I am new here and am after some information if at all possible.
      I understand this may have been written elsewhere but i would really would appreciate it if someone could guide me through the steps i need to take (if it is possible).

      Right here i go.

      I play a game online, where someone hosts and we all connect to their machine.
      I have not yet been able to "serve" myself due to the non-port forwarding abiity of the sky package.
      Luckily though I found his great site so I am thinking that it may be possible afterall.

      Ineed to set TCP and UDP traffic for ports 6654 and 6655 and direct them to my IP address.

      Is this possible? Any if so...how?

      You can always get your own router to do port forwarding although you gotta remember tech support will give you your username and password but if anything goes wrong with that router they won't technically support you cause its not there equipment
